- Flipkart is opening its Bengaluru warehouse to the Indian Army.
- The Indian Army will conduct tours of the warehouse to educate college students from Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) about supply operations.
- The warehouse was recently upgraded to include 100 automated robots.
The armed forces has been invited to conduct their ‘Confidence Building Tours’ for college students of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) at the location.
This is the same warehouse that was recently upgraded by the Walmart-owned enterprise to include 100 automated robots. These robots are to pick up objects from the conveyor belt, scan for their destination and drop packages down the respective chutes.
This move hasn’t impacted the human workforce but has made operations more efficient, according to the company.
As a part of the tour, the students will be able to learn about the company’s key supply chain functions. They will also see how technology is used to deliver packages from a metropolitan city like Bengaluru to some of India’s most remote locations.
